Paul George called out Doc Rivers for the way the former head coach of the Los Angeles Clippers used him on offense last season.

George noted Rivers was trying to use him like he was J.J. Redick or Ray Allen and admitted last season was hard for him.

“The way I was being used, I felt Doc was trying to play me as a Ray Allen or a JJ Redick, all pin-downs. I can do it, but that ain’t my game.

I need some flow, I need some mixes of some pick-and-rolls, post ups, diff. touches. Last season was hard,” George told Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson during his appearance on the All the Smoke podcast.

Rivers parted ways with the Clippers and took over the Philadelphia 76ers, with Tyronn Lue replacing him at the helm of the team. For his part, George wants to help the Clipper make the Finals next season.
